For the Record: Weezer, 'Pinkerton'

Sure, I can claim with confidence that it’s wrong to exoticize Japanese girls. But is it wrong to admit that sometimes you hate yourself because you find yourself doing it? And is it wrong to find that kind of relatable?

Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club's “Players” pokes fun at the life of the actor, a life that seems dramatically more foolish—perhaps even more self-servingly ridiculous—in the context of war.

Molière’s 'The Misanthrope' Gets a Modern Makeover in 'School of Lies'

The time is 1666, and you are sitting in a Paris salon among corseted women and foppish dandies. However, as indicated by the lines above, you are not listening to dialogues in standard 17th-century verse. The humor is undoubtedly right here, right now in Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club’s “School of Lies,” a new play that will open at the Loeb Experimental Theater and run from Dec. 5 to Dec. 13.
